Who We Are


Survivors Lead is the nation’s first gun reform and direct service organization led 100% by survivors. Survivors Lead provides unique peer support and advocacy for survivors of gun violence. We take a municipality-based approach to curbing gun violence, focused on survivor-led efforts to end gun violence in our cities.

  • We work with families and assist them in advocating for their murdered loved one in unsolved/active cases, provide survivor peer support throughout the trial process and beyond.

  • We are developing retreats between survivors of police violence and law enforcement cadets to address police violence and mass incarceration.

  • We offer leadership trainings and consultations for survivors of violence interested in running for public office.
